    Project Change is a unique program providing comprehensive educational services and resources to serve students and the community. The program's strong network of support provides incarcerated youth opportunity for career and postsecondary attainment at College of San Mateo (CSM).

    Project Change is the first community college supported program in California to provide wrap-around student support services, direct access to postsecondary education for incarcerated youth, and in-person college instruction inside juvenile youth facilities.

    Design


    The project connects students to resources and programs at CSM, such as a college readiness summer bridge program, social and academic support services, nationally recognized cohort learning communities (Puente, Umoja, and Mana), and career and technical education programs. Students are provided a clear pathway to resources on campus to enhance success.

    A supportive network of volunteer faculty and staff mentors, as well as a project director, assist students with navigating their first year in college.

    This program unites CSM and San Mateo County community organizations together in a joint effort to help underrepresented populations of students make the transition to community college.
